angusthongsLouise Rennison has died aged 63. Her humorous books for teenagers have been devoured over the years by an obsessive fan base who relate to her witty diary style and made-up words.

Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging was published in 1999. Rennison went on to write ten more books in the Georgia Nicolson series. The books were written in diary format about 14-year-old Georgia who lives with her irritating parents.

In 2010 she won the Roald Dahl Funny Prize for Withering Heights.She sold over 2.6 million books to a generation of teenage girls. Her fantastic titles, Ok Iím Wearing Really Big Knickers and Are These My Basoomas I See Before Me, enticed a generation of girls to read her books and embrace the weirdness of their teenage years.
